Kristi had no idea as a young girl who was terribly afraid of the dentist, that she would one day become a world-class dental hygienist. One of her favorite things about her profession is the opportunity to help her patients build and keep their confidence with a healthy smile. She thrives on building meaningful relationships. This year she has been a WINO, a “Woman In Need of Off-time,” to spend with her graduating senior daughter. Her personal goal is to make sure all her patients feel safe and relaxed during their time in her chair and look forward to their next dental visit.
